ZackDanger: FTFA: Wu told the Times Herald. "Plus, why go to Canada if we can do Alaska and a lot of other things here?"Um....
Arkanaut: Also, less sun.
ongbok: Is there snow on the ground in Fairbanks 24/7/365?And it isn't like it is uncommon for a crew to shoot a scene somewhere other than the place it is set. Always makes me shake my head when people complain about this.
puckrock2000: I'm pretend subby didn't fail English.
BunkyBrewman: I guess it's better than that Cedar Rapids movie (2011) that used the Philadelphia skyline as its backdrop.[media.philly.com image 400x340]

Always makes me shake my head when people complain about this.Almost. God, winter didn't want to let go this year. But if we're really lucky, we'll have almost 3 full months without snow this year! Stupid Fairbanks. Stupid humanity. You'd think we'd come up with a way to cure snow or something if we're all so smart an "adaptable". (Works better when read as Homer Simpson, I think)
kidgenius: Arkanaut: Also, less sun.Not during the summertime....But, the angle of lighting and color temperature is just off. It definitely had the look of SoCal.
ZodiacMan: They did something like that when they opened up the new plant in Chattanooga to build the Passat. Apparently the guys in Wolfsburg thought Chattanooga was in a mountainous dessert instead of a somewhat mountainous but not quite that mountainous humid sub-tropical temperate zone filled with trees and plants and stuff.[graphics8.nytimes.com image 480x300]

cannotsuggestaname: kidgenius: It definitely had the look of SoCal.except that it is NorCal.
Lachwen: cannotsuggestaname: kidgenius: It definitely had the look of SoCal.except that it is NorCal.As an extremely recent transplant to Livermore, I'm still trying to figure out how "practically the middle of the goddamn state" is "north" California. There's still a crapload more California north of there!
evilsofa: Just one problem: Fairbanks deals with icy roads by using gravel.
Voiceofreason01: Also Fairbanks has more than three trees. There are a lot of places(even in California) that look a hell of a lot more like Fairbanks than Vallejo.
Rush Mountmore: How do you like livermore? I've lived in pleasanton for a long time. I spend alot of my free time there
Lachwen: Rush Mountmore: How do you like livermore? I've lived in pleasanton for a long time. I spend alot of my free time thereStill getting my bearings, I've only been here a week. Came down from Portland, so I'm still getting used to this whole "hot before August" thing. But so far it seems pretty nice. Just need to start exploring the microbrew selection down here. And holy crap, you can buy liquor at Costco. That blew my poor Oregonian mind.
